iPad Pros and more to be expected.
Apple’s next event will be held on April 20. The company announced it with an invite with a tease announcing the upcoming “Spring Festival” event. The official confirmation came simply hours after the company’s voice assistant announced the date early while asked “When is the following Apple event?”
As is typical, there’s not much to derive from the invitation, even though the squiggly Apple logo and “spring loaded” tagline may want to trace at a brand-new Apple Pencil stylus — possibly one with a few kinds of clickable button.
So excited for this one! Only seven more days. 👀 pic.twitter.com/PVJFcESqh8— Greg Joswiak (@gregjoz) April 13, 2021
The timing of the event also favors the announcement of new iPad pros. Although the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch tablets are said to be similar in design to last year’s models, the larger version is said to be Apple’s first version with a mini-LED display. A new upcoming iPad mini has a large screen size of 8.5 to 9 inches (the last time it was 7.9 inches), and it will also go on sale in the first half of this year. Another aspirant participating in this event is Apple AirTag. As early as 2019, iOS published a link to a tracker believed to use the ultra-wideband technology introduced on the iPhone 11. Although they were reported to have started mass production last year, they have not yet been officially announced.
It is alleged that Apple is working on new IMACS, MACBOOKS and AIRPODS this year.
In addition to the devices Apple will announce soon, there will be more devices on the market this year, and these devices may also be revealed next week. According to reports, Apple plans to update its iMac product lineup this year by upgrading to Macs using Apple’s own silicon processors. Rumor has it that the changes include thinner bezels and a design similar to Pro Display XDR. Apple confirmed last month that once the inventory runs out, it will stop selling the current base iMac Pro, which indicates that Apple may be preparing to release a new model as soon as possible.
There are also reports of a new MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air this year. There are rumors that fan favorite features like MagSafe charging and SD card slot are rolling back to laptops, and MacBook Pro’s divisive Touch Bar may be threatened.
Then there are Apple’s AirPods. According to reports, a new version of true wireless earbuds is under development and may appear as early as the first half of 2021.This comes from a Bloomberg report last year, in which the new Air Pods will be equipped with Air Pods Pro elements, such as shorter rods and interchangeable ear pads.
Finally, Bloomberg also reported last year that Apple may release an upgraded Apple TV in 2021.According to reports, this year’s model will focus on gaming and will have a new updated remote, processor and 120Hz support.
